After trying almost all Asian restaurants in Maadi (if not all of Cairo), I must say San Marino serves the best food and overall is the most enjoyable Asian dinner experience for me. It is not fancy at all and rather downplayed. You have the typical big Samsung tv at the end of the corridor with a Korean channel playing.... More

A good variety of Korean homecooked food at reasonable prices next door to a British style sports pub. Strange, but worth a visit.

Excellent watering hole to visit for late night drinks and a game of darts or pool. Can get pretty filled on a Thursday night, but worth a trip. They also have very good Korean food.

This place is basically a tiny little bar with a pool table, where you can get some cheap booze, have some peanuts at the bar, and waste some time shooting pool with a friend.

I have spent many evenings in San Marinos.You never know what will happen. Quiet evenings turn out loud when an unexpected crowd turn up. Food always tasty and drinks reasonably priced. Decor needs upgrading . It is part of the charm of the place .Go give it a try.

My wife and I moved to Egypt recently, and we've been to San Marino three times. Please don't let the appearance discourage you. The food is great, the service excellent, and the beer is very cold, a big plus at lunch in Maadi. We love the varied appetizers they bring out before the meal; the soups are excellent, and the...

If you like Asian food, then you are going to want to try this place. It is located in New Maadi, but don't judge a book by its cover. I have eaten here several times because it is only a five minute walk from my flat. I have never been disappointed with the service of the food. The staff is... More
